I am also building a P8R and to me it looks like part 06-011a is reversed on the left side? Its kind of hard to see from a picture so I added a picture of the part i mean.

I build the shocks to have a little bit of rebound and try to get all 4 to rebound the same. Oil the o-rings before installing them. Make sure to clean off all burrs from the pistons. I found the suggested length for the shocks to be a bit short as I could not tighten the ball end all the way on, so mine are a bit longer, but make sure they are equal left and right.
At our last club race (temporary track, gritty surface, VHT applied, super high grip) I ran black springs in front, silver in rear, 1 hole piston front, 2 hole piston rear, 500 all around.

Not allowed to post prices on RCtesc. Go to Tools and miscellaneous on www.ybslowinc.com for pricing. I do not have a ton of these so get them while they are available.
